A good night's work

At the last minute, I decided to play in the 7:00 p.m. tournament at the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica last night. Thirty-seven runners paid the $110 to enter. When there were three of us left, a chop was suggested. I had been the big stack for most of the final table, but at this point I was actually in third place, so we all agreed to take $833, not a bad night's work.

When there were six players left (five to get paid), the blinds got all in against each other. When one showed A 6 and the other A 6, hilarity ensued (to use one of crAAKKer/Grange's favorite expressions). One of the players wasn't laughing when the board was dealt and showed four hearts, giving the other an ace-high flush and eliminating him. Poker is mean sometimes.

Last Saturday, there was a $500 buy-in tournament that paid $13,000 for first and $7,400 for second. The guy who was second played last night and every time a new dealer came to the table, I had to listen to him tell how he came in second along with all the gory details -- enough already. (You are allowed to brag on your blog, just not so much in person, lol.)
